The Sloper Outdoor Rock Climbing Guide App aims to bring your guide book to life with a news feed of new route activity, hardware safety issues, quality ratings, grade consensus and an interactive ascent logging and tick list creation.
Tabvar (The Association of Bow Valley Rock Climbers) and the Sloper Climbing App have joined forces to help keep the Climbers in the Bow Valley safe and well informed by using the App obtain and distribute hardware safety concerns to the community.
When using the App, climbers will have access to Sport and Traditional climbs in Bow Valley where they can not only log their ascents but report maintenance issues on the route's bolts and anchors. As fellow climbers use the App they will be notified of an issue as soon as it has been logged as an alert to possibly avoid climbing on that particular route.
Tabvar can then take this information, prioritize the issues reported, and focus their volunteer’s efforts on the more critical tasks.
